I used this pattern last year and I love the look of these pants. K has outgrown the purple pair, but the navy ones are still going strong. (the other two pants in that post do not fit anymore either).
Ottobre 01/2009 #29 Saija Sweatpants
I made three pairs (in October) and Miss K finally let me get a few pics.
Pair one is an orange cotton velour with aqua ribbing. There is 3" elastic in the ribbing waistband to ensure they stay up. K wouldn't let me get a picture in them :( But these fit great.
Pair two is a green cotton velour with no ribbing. I added a bit to the rise and put in 3/4" elastic. I think I like it with the ribbing better but K doesn't mind either way.
The third pair is with blue sweatshirt fleece. It has a cotton/lycra band on top. It is a bit snug at first but loosens a bit during the day to be comfortable. This pair has pockets of jersey by K's request. I don't like pockets in knit pants because they always seem to want to bunch up or pop out. And these certainly do.
Sorry for the terrible pics. It was 6am and this is all I could get
All three pairs are a straight size 146. They are a tad long and baggy on K now but I wanted to ensure they would make it through this year without K growing out of them!
Orange cotton velour and Green cotton velour both from a facebook group buy in Feb 2014. 1 yard each, $7.40 each.
Blue Sweatshirt Fleece from mill end back in August 2013, 1 yard, $3.50.
Also,yesterday I was able to trace, pre-wash, and cut 3 tops out for me. A renfrew, a plantain, and one of my favorite Ottobres; all for myself! I hope to get them sewn this week.
And in my down time I went through all my patterns and magazines and created an excel database of every pattern I wanted to sew. I made separate tabs for myself, K, T, and Mr. Now when I get done with a project I can just look at it and jump to the next!
